i want to go to Kensington market tomorrow because ive heard its good to buy second hand clothes from but i dont know exactly where it is. Could someone tell me where it is in relation to some major streets and if they recommend any particular stores? If not in kensington then others areas downtown with cool cheap clothes. thanks

If you have time to browse, you'd be surprised at what you can find at Value Village or even Goodwill. And stuff there is a hell of a lot cheaper than a lot of stuff you will find at Kensington.

Actually get off at college and walk one street west, that is kensington. Walk north on Kensington and go in all the second hand stores along the way. Tons of selection, prices are on the high end as it is a pretty trendy place.

Best place in TO for your fruits and veggies and cheese and meat . Worst place in Toronto to get fresh bread.

European meat market rules the bacon...

If you get hungry...check out the European Deli (I think that's what it's called). You get a nice sized burger, fries and a pop for the low low price of $3.49. As for clothing stores...just wander.

Courage My Love - great jewelry potential. Good for gifts and wrist cuffs. Great shirts too. BEAUTIFUL ties that are so chic and only for $4!

Astro - hot girl working there who styles and reads Vogue. Best custom-made shirts. And lots of really expensive pieces.

The trick to Kensington is digging. Only then will you find deals. It's really not that big so you'll find that you probably can go through all the stores in about 2 hours.

Twice as Nice is the best so far for sporty stuff. Lots of great vintage stuff and they just opened so they're not all pricey yet. They have a lot of really great unpretentious stuff at reasonable prices. Like $7 for a t-shirt as opposed to fucking $29.99.

I mean, I used to get $5 bags of shit and now I have to spend $39.99 on a pair of old cords? Fucking Kensington's gone down the tubes ever since fucking hipsters came and ruined it.

Also, the Planet Aid on Nassau is great. Lots of really nice things for cheap. And your cash is going to the store plus global aid.

Good luck!

Kensington Market is actually SOUTH of College St. Nassau St is 2 blocks south of College and the market is west of Spadina.

word up.

I love courage my love, but you must DIG. like sunny said, the hipsters came along and now the prices are very inflated. now it seems that your paying to 1. say that you bought it at kensington and 2. say that it's vintage.

last summer I paid 16 dollars for kilt, mind you, it was good quality, still a little pricey. argh.

above all, i reccommend spending a saturday morning/early afternoon browsing good will and salvation army...unless you're searching specifically for vintage designer labels.
